By Type of Edge
As with all other materials, your porcelain slab must have a finished edge. However, unlike other materials, porcelain slab has a limited edge. These slabs are typically 6- 12 mm thick and they can be very brittle prior to installation. This means that square edges are the most common. Of course you can also choose beveled and bullnose edges, but any additional requirements will add to the cost of the project.
By Type of Finish
Porcelain slab is available in two finishes - polished and unpolished. Most manufacturers offer both finishes, and some offer different finishes in different colors. Polished porcelain slab is slightly more expensive than unpolished porcelain slab, depending mainly on the manufacturer.
By Choice of Color
Color is not a huge driver behind the cost of porcelain slab. Because porcelain slab is man-made, color has little impact on cost. You can choose porcelain slab in a range of popular colors such as white, tan and black.
Porcelain Slab & Granite Slab Cost
Granite slabs are made from stones quarried from the ground. They come in a variety of colors and styles, and each one is unique. Porcelain slab is a man-made material, so there can be countless porcelain slabs of the same color and style.
Most granite slabs are 2 or 3 cm thick, while porcelain slabs are mostly 6-12 mm thick. Obviously granite slab is thicker than porcelain slab and thus easier to work with and ship.
Both are available in comparable price ranges. However, granite slab requires more maintenance and needs sealers and special cleaners, so the maintenance cost will be higher.

Porcelain Slab & Quartz Slab Cost
Porcelain slab and quartz slab are both popular man-made slabs with low maintenance and high durability. Unlike granite slab, which requires special maintenance, these two slabs do not require sealers or special cleaners.
However, the composition of the two slabs is very different. Porcelain slab is made from compressed clay powder, which makes it recyclable and easy to produce. Quartz slab is made from 93% natural quartzite mixed with resins and pigments. It can be made in different thicknesses, usually thicker than porcelain slab, but it is not recyclable.
The production costs are comparable, but quartz slab may work out cheaper if you have a smaller surface area to cover.
Porcelain Slab & Marble Slab Cost
Marble is a natural stone that is much softer than granite. Like granite slab, marble slab varies in color and appearance. However, you should be warned that marble slab can easily corrode or dull when it comes in contact with chemical liquids.
Porcelain slab is often designed to look like marble slab, but it is much easier to maintain. It does not dull or corrode, and it does not require special cleaners or sealers. However, porcelain slab is thinner and more difficult to transport and handle than marble slab.
When we look at the cost in general, porcelain slab is cheaper. However, there is an important difference here. Because marble is a natural stone, it does not need to be manufactured like porcelain.
This means that the cost difference comes down mainly to the installation process. Installing porcelain slab, which is thinner, requires more attention to detail than installing marble slab, so if you look at the installation aspect, porcelain slab costs a little more.
